The Ivey Ranch Park Association is dedicated to encourage the interaction of children with and without special needs, of all ages, by providing educational and recreational activities. Since 1983 we have served children and adults with disabilities but will not exclude the able-bodied, since integration, inclusion and interaction are important components of our program. Serving over 200 individuals a month, our essential goals are community integration, community participation, personal choice, self-respect and respect for others and competence and self reliance. Currently over 2/3 of our children here at Ivey Ranch have moderate to severe disabilities which include behavioral disorders, genetic disorders, and disabilities caused by accident or trauma.
At Ivey Ranch Park we offer a variety of services including a childcare program, in-home respite, therapeutic riding, horseback riding lessons, horse camp, community garden plots, and special events. This provides a variety of volunteer opportunities. Volunteers are how we are able to do all that we do and we appreciate their hard work and support.
I have been volunteering at Ivey Ranch for three years now. Not only do they have a wonderful and helpful staff that is always excited to recieve new volunteers but their horses are all very sweet and all love to be papered. Since Ivey Ranch is a theriputic barn, on certain days of the week there are oportunities for you to volunteer with our disabled riders. In short, Ivey Ranch is a wonderful place, and it is an amazing way to reach out to our community and volunteer.
